Alex Cora sore from holding back CC Sabathia during brawl

Alex Cora

Alex Cora is feeling the effects of Wednesday’s benches-clearing brawl with the rival New York Yankees … literally.

The Boston Red Sox manager said on Thursday that he was sore from holding back Yankees pitcher CC Sabathia during the fracas, according to Bob Nightengale of USA TODAY Sports.

Though he has slimmed down in recent years, Sabathia is still officially listed at 300 pounds. Cora, who was listed at just 200 pounds during his playing career, also expressed regret for the decision in the hours after the brawl.

Indeed, Sabathia seemed like quite a terror during the skirmish as well.

The rookie manager Cora was already not pleased with what led to the brawl. His aching joints the morning after probably only heightened his disgust.
